Change is a-brewin’ in Dallas and it’s more than just the shifty weather. As the new year presses for fresh starts, Highland Park Village‘s newest additions marked by an unexpected closure, is already making for an interesting 2015. A simple stroll around Dallas’ top luxury shopping destination, reveals the closing of popular sip and shop gathering Number One, and exciting new developments of a specialty grocery store and future opening of popular footwear label Giuseppe Zanotti. With so many changes on the horizon for HPV, we’ve compiled them all here for your one-stop scoop in retail developments. Read on for more:
Open since 2012 and developed by the gang behind Forty Five Ten, Number One was where well-heeled Highland-ers headed for haute coffee and convo. A known hub for a not-so-ordinary cup of joe, this retail-café hybrid restored roots of what once stood a soda fountain 80 years ago, and re-emerged as the community hot-spot for posh sips and bites encased by unique finds.
After two years of service, Number One closed its doors to much surprise on December 31, 2014. Announcing the arrival of a new specialty grocery store concept, the newly vacated spaces for both Number One and its neighboring bookstore Chapter Two, will entertain the new food and grocery offering for opening in the near future. While circumstances surrounding the closing is unclear, signs surrounding the once occupied digs cite the need for “food and grocery offerings to encompass the Preston Road frontage.”
Although the news may register as a shock to some, all is not loss for faithful Number One fans as product favorites Aesop, Dezso, Green Glass, and select book titles will find a new home at Forty Five Ten, while ATM Clothing, Egg Press, Loren Stewart, and S-Perfume will now shuffle over to Five and Ten. Lest we forget, Number One menu favorites including the much buzzed about house made almond milk, will be made available this month at Forty Five Ten’s T Room.
Opening Early Spring
Between Hermès and Ralph Lauren
Our meanderings through the HPV campus also revealed the future addition of luxury designer label Giuseppe Zanotti to the mix, scheduled for an early spring opening. Touted as the 92nd store opening for Highland Park Village and a first ever for Texas, this Italian-based label brings not only its revolutionary footwear and accessory designs to the table, but also a fresh outlook on high-heeled perfection to the already impressive HPV store line-up.
Sought after regularly by the Hollywood elite, the Giuseppe Zanotti label is currently carried at Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Neiman Marcus retail locations — making it the perfect addition to the Dallas luxury shopper’s menu for personal delight.
As several additional storefronts still remain primed for new tenants at Highland Park Village, we’ll continue to keep you posted on more new and exciting developments as they appear on the horizon.
